No, there are no "secret police" in this one, yet the producers chose to ignore the title of the book upon which it, supposedly, was based: "Temple Tower." I don't know why movie producers so often decide that an author's title for a story isn't good enough.
Wikipedia says that the movie uses flashbacks extensively, causing critics to find the film tiresome. I disagree on both points. There were no "flashbacks," per se, but dream sequences, and they were not used "extensively." Further, the dream sequences were relatively short and not at all tiresome.
I like movies with secret passages and chambers, and this one fits right in.
Btw, who would believe that Leo G. Carroll's character could overpower Bulldog Drummond in a straight-up fistfight?

John Howard Continues To Do Well as "Bulldog Drummond"
Another delightful movie in the "Bulldog Drummond" series with John Howard and Heather Angel. Please note that Leo Carroll (aka Leo G Carroll) plays a devious character in this film. Supporting cast is good. Note that John Barrymore is no longer in the cast. And, of course, the marriage between the two principal characters - on second thought, I better not give the conclusion away.
